It was a pretty mediocre weekend as far as movies go, but that didn’t keep Disney’s Real Steel from earning $27.3 million at the domestic box office.

Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the
According to Super Hero Hype, the Darren Aronofsky Wolverine movie will simply be called The Wolverine. It will not be a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and will not feature the Russians invading Colorado. Instead, it will be a one-off, stand along project featuring Logan involved in a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman.
